The PROFIBUS Master protocol driver exists as a single port implementation. The driver can be configured as a Class 1 PROFIBUS Master to continuously interface with other PROFIBUS slave devices. The unit is also used for configuration of the nodes on the PROFIBUS network. It provides access to both standard as well as extended diagnostic information.
PROFIBUS DP Slave
The PROFIBUS DP Slave driver gives access to the ProLinx unit’s internal database via 244 bytes of Input data and 244 bytes of Output data (maximum 400 bytes total). These Input and Output data blocks are mapped by the user within the ProLinx module’s data memory allowing the user maximum flexibility and data transfer with other protocols.
